Back To Brenham. Talk about your National Emergencies in Texas. We had a "for real" one a couple of years ago or more in central Texas when the Southern Flyer Diner on the Brenham Airport closed down - http://www.southernflyer.com/index_files/Page329.htm

Thankfully they were able to re-open a few months ago. So those of us who hung in there and endured the hardship of going without their fine sandwiches and being waited on by the girls in poodle skirts, can return to enjoy that again.

Let's try to arrive at 11R prior to 11:00 am.

If you have questions or suggestions please contact Ken Peck at (512) 468-7790 or c170ken@earthlink.net .

This is the last place I recall a fly in with a tearful Louise Bickford asking someone to “take over” for her. You’re a GOOD MAN, Ken!

It’s also Texas Independence Day and nearby to many early events celebrating that. Not too far away in Navasota (where mutineers murdered and tossed French explorer La Salle's body into the river) is "Washington on the Brazos" state park which houses the original building in-which the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed (and the event which was attended by Founding Father Stephen F. Austin, who caught cold in the unheated building that frosty day... further developing into pneumonia which killed him... and in the meantime, a hundred miles to the southwest, soon to be fallen-heros were occupying the Alamo while awaiting news of the signing.)


(there will be a test next period) :wink:

An originality nut (mostly) for the right reasons. ;)
